Elsewhere I've seen this trifle called "Black Forest Trifle". This recipe is much better (IMO) if you use brownies, cut into 1" squares. Also, mix the pie cherries with approx. 1/2 Cup berry juice (the brownies then absorb the flavor better), change out the chocolate pudding mixture with white chocolate (mix according to pkg instructions, but fold in 8 ounces of whipped topping).
So, the layers go like this: 1/2 brownies on the bottom, 1/2 cherries next, 1/2 pudding/topping mixture next. Repeat layers. Top with chocolate curles or shavings. HUGE hit with my family!
